Title: The Past, Equilibrium IV
Author: Kate Thomas
Genre: Paranormal Romance – New Adult
Darkness seems to crowd in tight as Ellie tries to keep her head above the storm. Jacob’s struggle to fight back whatever had him locked in a coma leaves her feeling more alone than ever before. To reach for Victor or David seems trite and leaves her more confused than she’s willing to admit.
As her time with Veronica unfolds, she learns new truths about how Equilibrium came to be, where it draws it strength and why this new entity is hell-bound on destroying them.
With no one in the present to trust, Ellie runs to the past and finds refuge in the arms of the one who was called to ignite Equilibrium.
This, the penultimate book in the series, is tense. Much more so than the previous books. Ellie is struggling with the responsibility and with her self confidence. As a result, this book seems much darker, with a feeling of hopelessness. However as counterpoint to that, there is an element of yearning to this story which is apparent in Ellie’s conflict – not only between the light and the dark of her role as the core, but with the men who represent those elements.
The author has done a really good job of immersing the reader in Ellie’s emotions. And it is apparent that we are building to an explosive climax in Book 5. And I, for one, can’t wait.
